This is a belief which was invented to explain why we are all here. Basically it states that the world was created by some greater being (God). But then who created God? The theory of Creationsim falls flat through stating the Earth is thousands of years old, despite the fact it was proved to be billions of years old through scientific research. Creationists mock the theory of evolution and condemn the teaching of evolution at school. Evolution seems like the most sensible theory to me. Ah, but then howcome there are so many gaps in the evolutionary pathway? For one thing, it is a real fluke that an animal survives in fossil form, a billion-to-one chance requiring exactly the right geological conditions. Yes, we have a lot of skeletons in museums, but they are nothing when you consider how many animals have existed over the history of time. For another thing, it has been suggested that evolution takes place in jumps rather than gradually (a new, more evolved species suddenly starts appearing, gradualy takes over the older species). As for the teaching of evolution at school, it is taught as a theory. You don't have to believe in it. On the other hand, teaching Creationism at school involves indoctrinating children. I still remember being told that "God is always watching us and can punish us if we act or think wrongly". It makes me laugh when certain Creationists complain about CCTV cameras everywhere or the government spying on us all. Beliefs like Creationism were the Big Brother and the CCTV cameras of their day, were used to control the working classes. Now George W Bush is talking about teaching Creationism in schools in the USA instead of evolution. I can't help feeling all he really wants to do is create a brainwashed army to fight a religious war against Muslims.
A certain Creationism-believing journalist equates anyone who believes in evolution with genocidal murderers, tells us how narrow-minded they are. That's funny, because the religious people I've met are some of the most narrow-minded, snobbish, hypoctrical bigots I've ever had the misfortune the come across.

The idea that two centuries of consistent scientific data by thousands of logical minds is wrong and that Earth and life were not created by a causal chain of events but by an infinitely knowing, loving and powerful--yet seemingly indecisive and possibly bipolar--deity in less than a week. Its strongest argument is its compelling assertion that if you don't believe in it, you'll go to Hell with everyone Jerry Falwell finds personally distasteful and you'll all roast for eternity while demons gangrape you with white-hot tridents.
Jack Chick said science is just as evil as Catholics and Jews, and that's why I believe in creationism.

The result of Christians' insane refusal to accept that their religious doctrines are wrong.
Creationism can only be believed by people with absolutely no understanding of science or history.

The belief that you know more about science than an actual scientist.
I think creationism is a fact and evolution is JUST A THEORY. Kind of like how the Sears tower is JUST a little bigger than a phone booth.

The belief that ALL lifeforms on earth magically appeared in, literally, a couple of days.
Did you see the movie creationism? It has the wildest FX but, geez! Totally unrealistic story! A waste of money if you ask me!

The idea that God created everything and we were never apes clonking each other with clubs and fossils are the result of the deadly "flood" known from the story of "Noah's Ark".

It's basically all B.S.
Pastor: "God created everything, face it, he is the most powerful creature on Earth. Creationism is fact."
Scientist: "Have you proof of such happenings? Have you found God?"
Pastor: "The Bible is enough proof."
Scientist: "Anyone can write facts down and have people believe in them. Just look at how Santa came to be."
Pastor: "You have a point. I have wasted countless years believing the ridiculous. I see the light now."

Lies, fairytales, bullshit.
Person A: I believe in creationism.
Person B: You are a retard.

A word that refers ONLY to the specific creation myth that the world was created as per the book of Genesis, and the people who try to defend that story as the literal truth.
"Creationism is contradictory in the simple fact that it attempts to discredit science, while at the same time trying to use science to justify it's position."
